Buddy Murphy Speaks About His Physique and About Aleister Black Making his AEW Debut
“It was a strategically taken picture,” Murphy pointed out. “I look a lot bigger than what I actually weigh. I don’t hold much water, so if you take the water weight out, I’m maybe a little smaller.
My last match in WWE, I think it was around WrestleMania Battle Royal, I was about 200lbs. But visually I look a lot bigger, it’s just a number on the scale to me. Right now I am about 213-215. But I definitely gained size, my strength is really good at the moment.
I had a bad mentality when it came to food, especially towards the end of my run in WWE. I would diet like crazy Monday to Friday, in hopes that maybe Friday is the day. “I always wanted to be ready. I didn’t want to be that guy where when his ticket is called, he is not ready.
Also, I have been training at a wrestling school for the last 6 months in case you need a 20-minute match that I can go to. I’ve also spent more time in the gym so when I take my shirt off I look good. Every time is like a job interview, you just don’t know.
But then you get to Friday, you don’t see your name on the sheet and you binge eat on the weekend. Then Monday comes and it starts again. So I’m eating more now, nothing has changed except for being ultra-lean heading into a TV taping.
I’m not binging and on a bad cycle”. Chris then asked Murphy about Malakai Black (fka Aleister Black) who recently made his AEW debut. Buddy is actually very happy to see his friend work for All Elite Wrestling, WWE’s current main rivals.
“It’s awesome that he gets to go over there,” Buddy Murphy said. “He’s going to do his thing and do what he wants to do, right? I feel like WWE dropped the ball with him. I’ve been in the ring with him, I know first hand how good he is.
I’m excited for him. He didn’t tell me, he kept it pretty low-low. And I was talking to him the day he debuted and he didn’t tell me. Only good things for him in the future”.
